bulletThe Big Twin High-Performance Guide
by D. William Denish bnbuy1x.gif (1691 bytes)
This is simply the best Harley-Davidson performance book available. If you want explanations of the theory behind making horse power and how it applies to a H-D big twin engine, this is the book you need. The book assumes the reader is intelligent to make his/her own decision on what performance components to use.
bulletHow to Power Tune Harley-Davidson 1340 Evolution Engines
by Des Hammill bnbuy1x.gif (1691 bytes)
If you want to build your own engine from the ground up, here is your guide to blueprinting the Harley-Davidson engine. Easy to understand and clear illustrations take you through every aspect of modifying the Evolution engine for maximum performance.
bulletHarley-Davidson Sportster Performance Handbook
by Buzz Buzzelli bnbuy1x.gif (1691 bytes)
This book comes very close to doing for H-D Sportster's what Denish's book does for big twins. Not quite as much theory, a little more Harley history, but a lot of practical information on building a strong Sportster engine.
bulletA Twist of the Wrist: The Motorcycle Road Racers Handbook
by Keith Code bnbuy1x.gif (1691 bytes)
Don't let the title of this book fool you. If you ride on public streets, you need the information in this book. The explanations of how to handle your motorcycle under all types of circumstances is just as applicable to street riding as on the race track. No matter what you ride, Aprillia to Harley-Davidson to Yamaha race bike, there is something in this book for you to learn. Get the video if you can. The presentation of the video is a little hokey from time to time, but it does not distract from the presentation of techniques presented in Code's books.
bulletTwist of the Wrist; Vol. 2: The Basics of High Performance Motorcycle Riding
by Keith Code bnbuy1x.gif (1691 bytes)
An expansion of techniques developed in the first A Twist of the Wrist. The extra information is excellent.
